Mark Woodside, 62, of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
"I just started again about three months ago to get back in shape. I sparred a little bit starting eight years ago, for four years, then I laid off of it. It makes getting into shape more interesting. My goal was to get in shape, then someone told me about Masters boxing so I thought I'd give it a try, just to put a little more pressure on myself for training purposes. This is my first competitive bout. I felt like before I even got here that I had won because my training was successful. This is like the icing on the cake to actually compete, whether I won or lost was secondary."
"A lot of my friends and people that I train with at home don't take me very seriously, it's just this old guy practicing in a corner, so I thought I'd just see if I can surprise them."
